Hi experts

We are currently backing up our exchange server with NtBackup. Recently I heard about the so called Recovery Storage Groups.
Am I right that I can restore individual mailboxes with NtBackup and those Recovery Storage Groups?

Thanks

Basically with a recovery storage group you mount the backup of your information store into the RSG and then export the mailbox using exmerge.

guys, that is incredibly fast, thank you :-)

So, I have to:
create a RSG
get my nt-backup file and choose the exchange server information store
specify backup destination (which should point to the existing information store)
Just execute the Restore and Exchange will redirect it to my RSG

Right?
